FIRSTSTEPS With Google Apps is a hands-on beginners course designed specifically for primary and secondary school teachers that have started, or are about to start using Google Apps for Education.
It is easy to get overwhelmed by email, yet there are many ways to tame your inbox. FIRSTSTEPS with Gmail for Senior Leaders will work hands-on at your pace using the built-in Gmail tools. Get your school email account working better and more effectively, and leverage the most from the technology.
The SAMR model is useful for analysing how teachers integrate technology into the classroom. FIRSTSTEPS The Nuts and Bolts of SAMR is a hands-on beginners course that analyses lesson plans through the SAMR lens. Build learning tasks that operate at each of the SAMR layers and learn how to incorporate existing technology to improve student outcomes.
Google Sites is an intuitive way to create websites for students or staff. In NEXTSTEPS with Google Sites we will learn how to make attractive, highly customisable sites for student ePortfolios, parent portals, class sites, staff sites and school websites.
Google Classroom is a Google App that creates an online space for teachers and students. It allows teachers to assign work to students, which the teachers can automatically see – no sharing required! Teachers who wish to do NEXTSTEPS with Google Classroom need to have had Google Apps for about a year and completed FIRSTSTEPS With Google Apps. This is by far our most popular course, so book early.
